Dog Attack in Brookland

Reported on the Brookland listserv: an unprovoked dog attack.

On Thursday morning I was attacked by a dog on a leash at 9th & Kearney around 8:00 am.

The dog was on a leash and the owner, and the dog, saw me coming from at least 15 yards away, as evidenced by the woman saying "good morning" to me, and my responding "good morning" back.

I was not injured, but the dog lunged at me, missing my hand but vigorously latching on to, shaking and ripping my bag.

Be careful if you are walking around a 40 or 50 lbs white with black and brown spotted dog in the morning, especially if you are elderly or have a small child, because its owner can not control it and it will attack you unprovoked.
